|Nov-14-07|| ||Eyal: It seems that Chucky threw away the win by 83.Qf8+? Instead, 83.Bf3! wins (83...Bxg2 84.Qh4+ Kg7 85.Qg4+ followed by Bxg2).|
|Nov-14-07|| ||othomile: |
Just played: 93.Ka3 · 1/2-1/2
|Nov-14-07|| ||Gypsy: <Gegga: <Gypsy: Time to resign, I think.> lol> Well, that was before Ivanchuk traded the bishops.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||TIMER: I said <Ivanchuk is playing this well, not just going to an endgame a pawn or two up- but squeezing the most out of the attack first to improve his position.> and then he did just the opposite!|
|Nov-14-07|| ||Gypsy: <Eyal: It seems that Chucky threw away the win by 83.Qf8+? Instead, 83.Bf3! wins (83...Bxg2 84.Qh4+ Kg7 85.Qg4+ followed by Bxg2).> Same from this view-point.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||moronovich: Tremendous save by Carlsen !!|
|Nov-14-07|| ||newton296: < OneArmedScissor: That <newton> guy can shut up now. All the Carlsen fan boys were dead set that this was a draw, etc.> |
do you see the draw now?
also, I'll admit I'm carlson fan. so what!
maybe you would have a point that i'm biased had the game not ended in a draw, but it did!
|Nov-14-07|| ||newton296: draw! magnus is a genius !!|
|Nov-14-07|| ||Jim Bartle: "Carlsen is not an inexperienced player."
All right, how about "immature," then? A 16-year-old just can't be a fully-formed top-tier player. Not even Fischer, Kasparov, etc.
|Nov-14-07|| ||Gegga: <newton296>. You should at least be able to spell his name correctly. Carlsen. With an "e".|
|Nov-14-07|| ||Jim Bartle: Very, very impressive.
Sneaky: "Don't underestimate the power of exhaustion."
Absolutely. Makes you want to go back to the days of adjournments, though it's no longer practical.
|Nov-14-07|| ||awfulhangover: Some kibitzers said that Ivanchuck gave up in a won position. (1-0 in 45 moves!) According to tablebase ...|
|Nov-14-07|| ||Resignation Trap: It's a tablebase draw once the Bishops came off. Good defense by Carlsen.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||cannibal: <awfulhangover>
Those kibitzers must have entered the final position with white to move, or something like that. With black to move it's a draw.
|Nov-14-07|| ||Gypsy: <Resignation Trap: It's a tablebase draw once the Bishops came off. Good defense by Carlsen.> Offering that trade was a brilliant psychological ploy by Carlsen. Tired Ivanchuk let his vigilance down and took the bait.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||ounos: Here is a nice tablebase:
Pass the word.
|Nov-14-07|| ||awfulhangover: Ok, you're right, Cannibal. I resign :-)|
|Nov-14-07|| ||acirce: Wow, Carlsen did survive this after all. Good fight.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||KamikazeAttack: Chucky should have won from move 32 with correct technique.|
|Nov-14-07|| ||ChessNe1: i guess this shows the importance of forcing the exchange of queens when the time is right.|
|Nov-15-07|| ||ahmadov: Bravo Magnus!
(I did not have a chance to watch this game live until the end. I thought that Chucky was winning, but it turns out that Carlsen managed to draw the game...)
|Nov-15-07|| ||ColonelCrockett: 34. Qd4 seems to win. Can someone please explain why Ivanchuk chose Be2?|
|Nov-15-07|| ||Progman: This is how I, a 1000 elo player at best would do in Ivanchuk's position: |
"OK, I'm two pawns up. By good use of Queen and King, I'll walk one of them to the 8 file one way or another. I'll get rid of the Bishops and make this less complicated..."
and of course I would forget that by doing so, I'd give the opponent the opportunity to check until eternity... Don't know what was in Ivanchuk's mind. But somehow I just can't believe he lapsed into the same way of thinking.
|Nov-15-07|| ||babakova: Carlsen got a little lucky and defended very stubbornly, a half point well earned.|
|Nov-20-07|| ||Ulhumbrus: Instead of 20...e4?! 20..Rb7 prepares ..Rb7-f7 without conceding either the d4 square or the 5th rank to White|
